Hello All, just wanted to introduce myself.
50-year old male from New Hampshire.
Herniated disc between L3 and L4 in 2008 and have had problems ever since.
Doctors are not recommending any kind of surgery.
I am not on any meds right now except for Lidoderm patches as my pain is only severe when I walk or stand for any period of time more than 5 minutes; in those situations I am at about a level 7 or 8 and must sit down. Sitting or lying down my pain level is a zero.
I may have some specific questions and/or concerns I would like addressed, but wanted to follow all the rules of the Mods first, and will also do a read over all the current threads for my specific conditions/problems before I start my own thread.
For now just wanted to say 'Hi' and thank everyone for such a great message board!
